2017-2018 — The Diamond Jubilee Years for Higher Spiritual Enlightenment

Diamond Jubilee Spark :: The Parts of the Fast of the Inner Self

Holy Ramadan Enlightenment Post No. 5 :: Knowledge & Prayers for Advancement

Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim
In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.

Ya Ali Madad and Ramadan Mubarak! The 24-hour clock the Muslim calendar starts sunset, therefore, Saturday, May 19, 2018 is the fifth night of the Holy Ramadan for Ismailis in Canada. The background, overview, niyat and noble wishes of the 2018 Holy Ramadan Project is presented in the project details page. The schedule, web page links and PDF posts are presented on the index page of the directory.

This project has daily posts because we have to keep our souls charged after the mulaqats with Noor Mowlana Hazar Imam. The states of our spiritual hearts have changed so Holy Ramadan is the right time to assimilate deep spiritual knowledge and accelerate our upward journey. We all look forward to Imamat Day 2018 while members of our global jamat are also preparing for the upcoming Darbars in Paris, London and Lisbon.

This post for this auspicious fifth night of Holy Ramadan has four parts:

  1. A gem of knowledge from Pir Pandiyat-i Jawanmardi, or "Advices of Manliness" of Imam NOOR Mowlana Shah Mustansir bi'l-laah II;
  2. A verse from the beautiful ginan of Pir Hasan Kabirdin (r.a.);
  3. A dhikr of ism-i azam, the door to luminosity;
  4. Angelic salwat which is the anchor tasbi for the project

Part 1: Teaching of Imam NOOR Mowlana Shah Mustansir bi'l-laah II (a.s.)
In Pir Pandiyat-i Jawanmardi, Imam NOOR Mowlana Shah Mustansir bi'l-laah II (a.s.) teaches us about the parts of the fast of the inner self:

"Here we specify the parts of the fast of the inner self: the fast of the head means to treat one's own head with the same humility as the feet of other people, casting out from one's head the lust of superiority, greatness and pride, because greatness and superiority are only suitable to the all-great substance of the Truth (Haqq), who is eternal, the King of the Authority.
 
The fasting of the eye means that one must keep away coveting looks from the women who are not lawful to one. The fasting of the ear means that one should abstain from listening to slander. The fasting of the tongue means that one should keep one's tongue from uttering abuse or slander. The fasting of the heart means to keep the heart free from doubt. The fasting of the foot is to hold one's foot back from a wrong step. The fasting of the hand is to keep all one's limbs away from treachery so that they may not do evil. This especially applies to one's tongue which must be kept from uttering lies. And there is no greater lie than the denial of (the existence of) the Imam, saying that he has disappeared. God has cursed liers, who talk about such a disappearance (of the Imam), and make the ignorant people follow them in order to enjoy their short lived respect." (p.60)

Part 2: Teaching of Pir Shams (r.a.)
In the following verses of ginan 'Ek shabad suno mere bhai', Pir Shams teaches us that the soul should be given great attention and priority so that it reaches its origin.

Eji Aash puni ham Shah dar aaya
Raiyan bini more Shah jagaaya
Shah jagaaya Shahka naamaj lina

Bi saa(n)iya het paaye rang laago
Bi saa(n)iya Pir paaye rang laago
Bi Saheb tose-thi man baandho
Moro dil baandho ji

 
O Brother: My hopes and wishes were accomplished when I attained the gate (or recognition) of the Imam. The Imam awakened me from the night (darkness of ignorance) which is now over. Since the time when the Imam awakened me, I have been taking His name only (wholeheartedly).

Oh Lord, through love, I have attained the colours (good values).
Oh Lord, through the (guidance of the) Pir, I have the colours.
Oh Imam, with you, my mind is bound and my heart is firm.

Part 3: Dhikr Section:
The ism-i azam is the door to luminosity, therefore it is a treasure that should be constantly remembered. Here is a humble dhikr to emphasize this point. Let us pray to NOOR Mowlana Hazar to empower us to practice the luminous prayer at a luminous time with a luminous word, i.e., perform bandagi with ism-i azam, the Supreme Name of God, with a greater effort, strength and enthusiasm.

Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim
In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.

Al-hamdu lillahi rabbil 'alamin.
Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds!

Part 4: Angelic Salwat
Let us now start presenting a nazrana of at least 101 salwats or continuous salwat for 3 to 5 minutes to our beloved NOOR Mowlana Shah Karim Al-Hussaini Hazar Imam for the fulfillment of our noble wishes. May our beloved Mowla continually keep us on the Right Path. Ameen.

Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim

Diamond Jubilee Sparks :: Higher Spiritual Enlightenment Educational Posts
 
The goal of this website is to provide resources for actualizing the Light of Imamat in one's spiritual heart, head, sense and conscience. This will enable each murid to also present spiritual and luminous nazranas as described below to Noor Mowlana Hazar Imam in the Diamond Jubilee.
 
A Spiritual Nazrana is in the form of a pure spiritual heart which is in a state of constant dhikr.
 
A Luminous Nazrana is in the form of a sound heart (qalb-i salim) which is in a state of constant dhikr & enlightenment.

NOOR Mowlana Murtaza Ali (a.s.) has said:

"Remember that the descendants of the Holy Prophet (S.A.S.) are stars in the Heaven, if one sets the other will rise to illumine your path; the Merciful Lord has thus completed His Blessings amongst you."



NOOR Mowlana Shah Karim Al-Hussaini (a.s.) Hazar Imam's prayer:

"And I pray that you may live in peace and with spiritual enlightenment to guide you."
